Aboard the ship, Hoshi presses a precursor to Uhura's listening device to her ear and shouts, "Grab onto something!" Outside the ship, several charges shoot up through the atmosphere around the ship and do quite a bit of damage. Alarms go off; Reed is knocked out of his seat, and he yells, "This is ridiculous, if we don't move, Cpt. Archer won't have anything to look for when he gets back!" T'Pol turns to Hoshi and says, "We're going to need that ear of yours," before going to the Captain's chair and giving orders to change their position.
Cpt. Quantum and Trip manage to find Klaang pretty easily and start to release him from his bonds. "This is going to be easier than I thought," Trip comments. Yeah, knock on tritanium! As soon as he's released, Klaang throws Trip across the room. Cpt. Quantum points his plasma pistol at him and says, "I really don't want to have to carry you out of here." I'd like to see you try, Quantum Man. He's only seven feet tall and a fake wrestler. Trip takes Klaang's arm and leads him down the corridors behind Cpt. Quantum. Apparently, captivity hasn't taught Klaang anything about being discreet, because he starts shouting. Cpt. Quantum tells him to shut up, which, surprise surprise, doesn't work. They get fired at and duck for cover. Klaang continues to shout. "You tell 'em, big guy," Trip says. I was wondering how long it would take to get a "big guy" out of Trip. Cpt. Quantum tells Trip to give him the "box." A Suliban creeps around the corner, but he's nabbed by Klaang "Zeus" the Klingon and dispatched the WWF way. "Thanks," Trip gasps, impressed. More phaser fire, and Cpt. Quantum orders Trip and Klingon to the pod, saying, "I'm right behind you!" He sticks the depolarizing thingy to a wall, turns the dial, and jumps back. There's an explosion (of course) and a shower of sparks. Lights flicker, and the sound of power shutting down tells us he's succeeded. Until the floor beneath his feet begins to separate. Cpt. Quantum looks around in surprise to see all the pods falling away from the structure. Okay, what exactly did he think was going to happen when he reversed the polarity? He knew all those pods were held together by a magnetic force -- that's what the structure is made up of -- did he think his pod would somehow stick to the structure until he got on board? Whatever. From the outside of the structure, all the pods begin to float aimlessly away. Kind of like bubbles in a fizzy drink.
